    Mathematics at HES is an area where children mathematize the problems they encounter in their lives in order to make sense of problem solving situations. To mathematize is to focus on the mathematical aspects of a situation and then formulate that situation in mathematical terms; it is a means for students to deepen, extend, elaborate,and refine their thinking in mathematics as they explore ideas and reason about problems. They solve problems, they reason and communicate their resoning, they visualize and represent their ideas using objects, drawings, written symbols and then connect ideas.
